Talent management is a priority as organizations continue to face multiple disruptions because of the pandemic and business continuity issues related to the workforce. It has never been more important to get leaders up to speed and help them acquire the knowledge necessary for the organization to remain competitive and keep the workforce both compliant and engaged. Most talent management efforts are more functional rather than focused on the processes that ensure the desired engaged and skilled workforce. Yet, many organizations fail to realize that it’s the experience in learning that matters most, as articulated in our perspective on how to build organizational readiness. Increasing engagement for learning across the workforce is important to ensure effective skills and talent in the organization.
